it here, and it's very, very discouraging. gerri: o what you torespondto what nancy pelosi had tosay about hostage-ting today. pretty dramatic comments. th is nncy pelosi. >> the republicans are sayg that rather than pasing that they want to hold it hostage, giving an additional ax cut to people maing oer $250,000 a year. that i not negotiating. that is hostage-taking. gerri: how would you repondo that? >> wel i would respond by saying that it is just the opposite of that in my opinion. the hostage-taking right now is that this presidenthas drawn a line in the sand. he's onltalking out one side ts equation. we have crisis here in washington. are spendg currently a trillion dollars more than we are bringing in. this president under hs first four years increase the size of our federal government spending by 25 percent, and now he's king for more stimulus money. unfettered control. this really is a hostage situation, and thiis not wha the american people need. we have million americans looking f jos, searching for jobs. we don't need to add dditional taxes. gerri: coerswoman, look. t
